It's not the mapchange. I think you can modify the mappool for your servers anyway (like restricting to overkill, just as the samplers do? At least I would hope you can).I think the max round limit is 30 for Pro servers, but that's still over an hour or so (?) of CA without map changes
It's ready, shuffle, and the whole "match" mindset. People will quit because of unbalanced teams rather then because it's not fun, they wanna play something else, got to go or for whatever reasons you would usually quit playing.
They will whine, troll, slum, not balance out to win, care care and more care. 30 roundlimit is weak. When people regrouped (even on pub), rounds didn't last longer than a minute, and 30 roundlimit would be reached in 40 mins. That's a long match, but still... it's a match
Like all the other 100 important things, they work on, and then throw out huge updated lists that me giggle most of the timeKickbans aren't working 100% as they should be, Sync_Error said they should be fixed in the next update
I highly doubt it, since it's been asked for a long time :>Multi-arena, I'm not sure if this is possible or not
It's not? But "my pub" will be heavily populated because it's so awesome?but it's not exactly difficult to go over to an empty server for a little one on one action.
Don't see what's gonna happen?
You play 2 hours of overkill, wanna do 11, maybe 21 rounds of 1v1 - you could easily do this with multiarena.
Instead, you will have to leave, connect another server, make friends with the guy (maybe I don't want to add him? What's with all your organizing stuff, I don't want to do that. I just wanna play and 10 years ago that didn't seem so impossible/hard ^^), play your game, get back on the overkill server. Oh wait, "Server is full". Chucks. Been nice to go through all this, just to play 11/21 rounds. Instead of gaming carelessly the whole day xD
ok, thats fine with me24 hr server
no wait it's not.just leave your PC on
1) I don't want those costs. Why would I pay for "2 servers"?
Isn't a pc running all day, while you don't do anything at it basically a server? xD
If I do that, why am I paying QL Membership again ^^
2) I don't want my laptop to die in a week because it ran 24/7. It's simply not designed for that. Unfortunately it already overheats after an hour or so of gaming session and the fan is getting ridiculously loud, so I have to plugout the power supply and back in every minute.
3) I wanna sleep. Did I mention the fan? xD
Evening? What evening? Will it fill withing 5 minutes at 15:00 my time? Public servers can, if popular. It's just a given pro/prem matches take longer to get going, I want my server public
It's like this:
Last time I did any sort of clanplay, was first hoq season I think. pretty long ago. Before that... 2005 maybe?
I did a few pickups now and then half a year ago via "invite pls", but also stopped that because it was nagging (esp. when u didn't get any invite, and was told to go pro/prem/whatever).
I don't have a friendlist, and I'm not reaaaallly planning to build one.
IF I DID get prem/pro for some other reason, all this private/competitive playing would be a nice bonus on top.
BUT it's not enough to bait me. It's just not what I'm primarily looking for.
I could add a tdm setup with prem maps (because frankly, most of the decent maps, such as derp inside, realm of derprats and whatever is played by skilled players are prem/pro) for free joining to my personal wishlist.
And plenty of other ideas that would be
b) not completely nub which no real quaker wants to play
Still, none of them will be possible. "good gaming experience" is reserved for the paying members, but if I would pay, I still wouldn't get what I want. a) and b) are contradicting itself by quakelives design, which is supposed to force you into paying.
and that system is not only flawed, but a flaw itself imho. pure opinion, but what I would hope for if I paid wouldn't happen, So I won't
